When planning to add windows to your home or business, it is important to know what you are looking for and to be informed of what options you have available. Euro Window offers a variety of glass types in both Double and Triple glazed. All glass types are available in both these thickness levels.
Euro Window double-glazed windows are one inch thick and are composed of two glass panels filled with argon gas sealed between them. Double-glazed windows are the standard thickness we use. Our triple-glazed windows are half an inch thicker and are composed of three glass panels with argon gas sealed between them. They are about 33% heavier than the standard double-glazed window. Triple-glazed windows offer better durability, insulation, and energy efficiency while reducing noise transmission and heat loss.
Clear glass is our default window glass type. It is the standard type of glass that most windows use. Regular glass is practical, and the most affordable type of glass when on a budget, while still providing adequate performance.
Tempered glass is about four times stronger than standard glass, and breaks into relatively harmless pieces when it shatters compared to standard(annealed) glass. Tempered glass is often used where safety is a concern, and all of our glass types can be tempered. For safety purposes, we always temper doors, and generally windows that exceed 70 inches in height.
Euro Window offers a standard dark tint, as well as a bronze tint. Tinted windows can reduce the amount of heat entering through windows, and the film blocks a significant amount of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. Tinted windows also provide an added layer of privacy and security by making it more difficult for people outside to see into your windows. They contribute to energy efficiency by reducing the heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter.
Acid wash glass, often described as frosted glass, offers much more privacy than clear glass as it is very difficult to see through. Typically, this glass is perfect for bathrooms or anywhere else where privacy would be a concern.
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass in which a polymer interlayer is placed in between the glass panels, which ensures that its integrity will hold up when broken. Windshields on cars are required to be laminated for safety purposes. Laminated glass also offers better insulation and sound transmission reduction.
Solarban-60, or “low-e” glass, is the most energy-efficient glass we offer. It was engineered to control solar heat gain, which is essential to minimizing cooling costs.
SB60 glass is manufactured to meet high-quality standards of strength and durability and offers excellent scratch resistance. The low iron content of SB60 Glass allows for more natural light to pass through, maximizing the amount of sunlight entering a space.
Mirropane windows, also known as one-way mirror glass. Mirropane glass windows provide one-way visibility meaning that the side with the brighter lighting will appear as a mirror-like reflection, while the darker side will have a clear view through the glass. The effect is achieved by having a significant difference in lighting levels on either side of the glass. Besides enhanced privacy, Mirropane glass also can reflect a significant amount of heat, helping to reduce the amount of solar heat gain in a building. This can contribute to energy efficiency and help to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
AVI Protect Glass
AVI Protek glass is a bird-friendly glass, with different types of patterns etched into the glass. This etching helps prevent birds from mistaking windows as safe to fly through. There are various different patterns that can be selected.
